Inflammation and Type 2 Diabetes

junio 11, 2018

Part 1 of two animations about type 2 diabetes. Please note: this video has been updated to improve images and sound. Original video views: 7,968

This animation describes the process of inflammation in type 2 diabetes via a unique structure called the inflammasome. Over time, this process damages the pancreas, eventually leading to decreased insulin secretion and inability to control blood glucose levels. Chronic inflammatory ‘lifestyle diseases’ such as T2D are rapidly increasing in the western world and will pose a huge health burden in future.
